CU IEWhat distinguishes Çankaya IE?

Quality and Accredited Education

Our curriculum is refined with courses designed to provide students with hands-on experience, including summer trainings and Systems' Analysis, Design and Implementation courses during which groups of our senior students work on real-life problems in partnership with various production and service companies in Ankara. Industry-university relationships, and hence, real-life projects provided through this relationship help our students apply their theoretical knowledge and gain experience before they graduate. Some of our graduates have even been offered positions in the companies partnering with our department as a result of their successful project work during this relationship.

English is the medium of instruction, providing a global advantage to our students and graduates.

Our undergraduate program was first accredited in May 1, 2013 by the Association for Evaluation and Accreditation of Engineering Programs (MÜDEK) and awarded the First Cycle EUR-ACE Certificate, and has been accredited and certified since then. Our dedication to quality education has been rewarded with an extension of the MÜDEK accreditation and the award of First Cycle EUR-ACE Certificate until September 30, 2023. Our graduates during the award period carry the certification on their diplomas, recognized for their B.S. degree in Europe and some other countries.

Experienced and Qualified Faculty

Our faculty members hold degrees from well-known and reputable universities from Turkey and abroad, providing a broad spectrum of expertise in various industrial engineering areas.

Each student has an appointed faculty member as an academic advisor who follows the student's academic progress, helps choosing and approving courses based on the curriculum, prerequisites and the student's grades; and also mentors the student throughout the university education.

Tuition Waivers and Scholarships

All of our undergraduate students are enrolled with tuition waiver according to their academic performance in the ÖSYM entrance exam. The tuition waiver obtained through the entrance exam continues throughout their education without interruption. In addition, students may obtain additional tuition waiver depending on their success in the program.
